I don't understand the benefit of doing:

#rm /boot/config

Why do you do this and does "make install" do it as well?
Actually you don't need to do this to make your new kernel work. I like to do this for two reasons, the first being cause Slackware comes with /boot/config symlinked to /boot/config-currentkernel; the second reason is... for documentation sake.

Merry Xmas.
